The 2021 ShapingEDU Unconference will be held on July 20-23, 2021 where, together, we will address a looming set of "wicked problems," (challenges with underlying competing values), including learning in the face of disruption, ethics and bias in data, student voice in education journeys and more.
Why you should attend this Unconference:
Educators, students, technology leaders and changemakers who want to hone their skills in grappling with the unknown mysteries ahead and transforming learning for the better through these disruptions are invited to join us at the inn.
The 2021 ShapingEDU Unconference will open with a Black Swan simulation focused on learning in the face of disruption to set the tone of strategizing around the unexpected. Days two and three, will leverage what you learned on day one to engage in working sessions focused around a set of wicked problems identified by the global ShapingEDU community.
Additionally, during this highly-interactive digital event, you are encouraged to roll up your sleeves to:
- Develop and build skills for dealing with the unknown, disruption and surprises. Surface big ideas around concrete actions and engage in working sessions to dream and design big.
- Create specific strategies and tools to address these wicked problems.
- Seek out ways to become antifragile in living and learning -- to move beyond resilience to thriving through disruption.
What is an Unconference?
At the ShapingEDU Unconference, there is no set program. While there will be full-group discussions and graphic facilitation, participants ultimately self-organize around the themes and ideas that resonate most with their work and passions. Ideas are generated from participants ahead of time to set the tone and be built upon, through the lens of crafting the futures of learning in the digital age.
